In a little over 48 hours, ABC will air a five-hour “docudrama” on the 9/11 attacks.
Public outrage is mounting across the country, and Variety reports that ABC is now “mulling the idea of yanking the mini altogether.” ABC TV should have no role in the political exploitation of 9/11 or the spreading of propaganda to millions of people across the country.
Please, demand that ABC withdraw this irresponsible affront to the public trust by signing the MoveOn.org petition which aims to collect 200,000 signatures today and deliver it to ABC TV tonight.
The fictionalized account was written and produced by a right-wing activist who freely admits that he fabricated key scenes. In addition to ex-members of the Clinton administration, Democratic and some Republican members of Congress, and a large cross-section of the public, the authors of the 9/11 Commission Report are joining the protest against “The Path to 9/11” 9/11 Commissioner Bob Kerrey:
“If you’re saying this is based on the 9/11 Commission report, there are substantial factual discrepancies. You need to get [them] out. … You can’t sit there as ABC and say, ‘Gee, we don’t have any responsibility.”
